Soap Scum is a two-piece garage rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They share interest in bands like Sebadoh, Babes in Toyland, Ty Segall, nirvana and Guided By Voices. Lucas (guitar/vox/noise) and Laura (drums/vox) are both from southern Wisconsin. While in Wisconsin, the two were exposed to an explosion of 90s punk and grunge records being reccorded there. Both Butch Vig and Steve Albini had a monsterous influence over what was being played on the radio at the time, heavily dosing the two with music from Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, and Nirvana.
